The conference proceedings of HIPC 2016 will be published in two volumes with two separate ISBN's: one for the regular conference technical program (HIPC) and one for the workshops (HIPCW). The online version of the publication will be distributed to all registered attendees one week prior to the conference and available online

The Conference Publishing Services (CPS) of the IEEE Computer Society will produce the HIPC 2016 proceedings. Post conference, papers presented at the conference and eligible for inclusion will be submitted by CPS to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. This requires that all papers submitted for publication must meet a minimum standard for both print and electronic publishing and that authors have filed a copyright release form with IEEE.

To help authors meet that standard, this HIPC Web page will take you to the CPS Author Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions (the author kit) page. That site will provide links to the PDF eXpress Online File Conversion/PDF Validation Tool and IEEE copyright e-form and instructions for submitting your paper for publication. DO NOT GO TO EDAS TO SUBMIT FINAL CAMERA READY PAPER.

Please contact the HiPC 2016 Proceedings Chair Ren Chen (renchen @ usc.edu) if you have any questions, and before going to CPS Author Kit page, please note carefully the following:


  • One or more of the paper’s authors should register for the conference at the full registration fee by in order for the paper to be published in the proceedings. Register here

If you elect to add extra pages, you may buy them online (as part of HiPC Registration) at a cost of USD 150/ INR 9,000 per page. Please note that these charges are in addition to conference registration and may be paid at the time you register.
